First Day at Glasgow School of English

You will be sent detailed instructions about how to get to the school from your host family or residential accommodation when your booking is confirmed.

On the first morning, you should arrive at school at approximately 8.45am. Classes start at 9am and, as we don't want you to miss any lesson time, we take you straight to your class. To ensure that your class level is correct, it is very important that you complete our placement test when you book your course.

After the morning class is finished, new students will meet with one of our staff for a short welcome meeting which covers things like;

  • The school facilities
  • Fire safety procedures
  • Computer access and Wi-fi
  • Changing class levels
  • Booking a trip on the social programme
  • How to obtain a class book
  • Purchasing a bus or train pass
  • School rules
  • Obtaining a UK SIM card
  • Police registration (if applicable)



Hello to my teacher and all the staff - it was great, and I really recomend the school.
